Arrival of an Icon.
For the 28th year in a row, WWE would present the Thanksgiving week tradition known as Survivor Series as the second-longest pay-per-view in WWE history came to you, live on the WWE Network and select pay-per-view providers, from the Scottrade Center in St. Louis, MO. In the near three decade long history of Survivor Series, WWE’s Fall classic has made for some of the biggest and most impactful matches in history and this year’s Survivor Series would be home to one of the most game-changing matches in the event’s history as, in a Traditional 5-on-5 Survivor Series Elimination Tag Match, WWE COO Triple H & WWE Principal Owner Stephanie McMahon would be forced to put their very livelihood on the line as, per the decree by WWE Chairman & CEO Mr. McMahon, The Authority must compile a five-man team to defend their control of WWE. On a team captained by “Mr. Money-in-the-Bank” Seth Rollins, Rollins would be joined by The Authority’s Director of Operations Kane, “The World’s Strongest Man” Mark Henry, United States Champion Rusev, and new Intercontinental Champion Luke Harper, Team Authority would have the unenviable task of squaring off with Team Cena as team captain John Cena would be joined by “The Show-Off” Dolph Ziggler, “The World’s Largest Athlete” Big Show, the mysterious Erick Rowan, and “The Big Guy” Ryback. In what promises to be one of the most memorable Survivor Series matches in history, Team Authority and Team Cena would be fighting for their careers as, if Team Authority loses, then Triple H & Stephanie McMahon will no longer be in charge of WWE, but if Team Cena loses, then Dolph Ziggler, Big Show, Erick Rowan, & Ryback will all be fired tomorrow night on RAW! Will Team Cena bring an end to The Authority’s reign of terror in WWE or will a Team Authority win spell the end of four of WWE’s biggest stars?
After weeks of mentally tormenting Dean Ambrose over his father’s incarceration, “The Eater of Worlds” may be in for a physical war with a certified madman as the mind games and personal animosity would all come to a head at Survivor Series when “The Lunatic Fringe” Dean Ambrose collides with “The Eater of Worlds” Bray Wyatt. Will Bray Wyatt use his presence inside the mind of Dean Ambrose to defeat “The Lunatic Fringe” or will the unpredictable Dean Ambrose prove too intense for “The Eater of Worlds”?
Since defeating her sister, Brie, at WWE Hell in a Cell to force Brie into being her personal assistant for 30 days, Nikki Bella has taken full advantage of her sister’s services, repeatedly using Brie in her battles with Divas Champion AJ Lee and, at Survivor Series, Brie’s servitude may reap huge benefits for Nikki when Nikki Bella challenges AJ Lee for the Divas Championship.
The WWE Tag Team Titles would also be up for grabs at Survivor Series as, in their most difficult title defense to date, the bizarre brothers Gold & Stardust would defend the tag titles against the former champions The Usos, Los Matadores, and the self-proclaimed “A-Lister” The Miz and his stunt double Damien Mizdow in a Fatal 4-Way Tag Match where the first team to score a pinfall or submission will leave Survivor Series as the WWE Tag Team Champions!
The Divas would also get in on a Survivor Series tradition as, in a Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Tag Match, the team of Natalya, Naomi, Emma, & Alicia Fox would face the team of Paige, Cameron, Layla, & Summer Rae.
